Plume Launches Adaptive WiFi Via Subscription for $60 a Year
Will customers subscribe instead of making a one-time router purchase?
Plume, a pioneer in the world of adaptive WiFi routers, is shifting its business model from one-time purchases for a mesh router to routers available via subscription. According to The Verge, the new subscription service, called Plume Adaptive WiFi, will cost $60 a year, or $200 for a lifetime subscription, plus the cost of the Pods needed to access the WiFi. With a subscription, subscribers will receive continuous, adaptive WiFi for as long as they subscribe, along with deep discounts on Plume Pods and warranties, parental controls, speed tests, access to HomePass and service management. The Verge says existing owners of Plume Pods will be grandfathered in and not subject to the subscription.
